Sounds like a couple pot heads sitting around and....WTF happened to Val Kilmer? Holy tub of lard, Batman! They should re-shoot the last 20 minutes of The Doors now, it'd be a lot more realistic.

I once met Lou Reed working in a bookstore in Greenwich village, around 1995.

He asked me for a book.

We didnt have it.

He asked: "Do you think Barnes and Nobles would have it?"

I replied: "Well, I guess but I just don't know"

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban were behind me in line in a Starbucks in Nashville. After I ordered, I was fixing my drink, and he came to do the same. I asking him to pass me the sugar. He said (in crazy Australian accent) "Oh, sure, it's right over 'ere," then passed me the sugar.

Maybe it's like how I'd rather have two single bourbons on the rocks in front of me instead of one double (so the ice has melted the appropriate amount when I get to the second).

Could be. But I'm a beer drinker, so I can't relate. And I'd certainly rather my second beer stays in the fridge while I'm drinking my first beer. So . . . yeah.

My wife was standing in the aisle and Carlos Santana said 'excuse me' because he couldn't get by and she said 'Oh hi!'

I think she had just taken a drink of water or was about too.
I'm not sure whether Carlos was drinking water, but he might have been.

That's pretty sad, people. He's not at all fat, or tubby. Or anything. He's over freakin' 50 years old. Age does that to a person. I'm seriously doubting myself or anybody in here will look that good at a half-century.

I could mention the half-dozen or so b-list celebs I've met, but they were pretty normal people who wouldn't be all that familiar to most people here.

One exception - Armin Shimerman. I had a very long argument with him over CGI replacing meat actors but he's a big believer in some mystical quality of a human performance that could never be replicated by a computer. The guy is very smart and very well spoken except for that one blind spot.

Well, I was kind of with him, until I saw "Beowulf" a few days ago. Man, first time I saw a CGI movie with realistic humans that got it right.

And it seems like the actors loves working that way, too. Except that Ray Winstone says it's hard to wear the skintight jumpsuits in front of Angelina Jolie.

A bunch of friends and I went to a screening of Bruce Cambell's Sci Fi movie The Man With TWo Screaming Brains (or something like that, they may have changed the title) and when I came back from the bathroom, Bruce was standing in the hallway just out of sight of the seats in the theatre.

I said "Hey,"
He Said "Hey"
I went back to my seat. My friend is still angry I didn't tell him Bruce was over there, since he wanted Bruce to autograph his copy of Bubba Hotep.

Amazing, but true.....

Someone above mentioned it, but in a not so nice way, but when did Heath Ledger become a great actor? It stinks for his family, especially his kid(s) that he died, but why does that automatically make him a great actor. People are dubbing his Joker portrayal as iconic, sight unseen. You can't count trailers, because remember how pumped everyone was after the first Phantom Menace trailer?

I'm guessing he will win an Oscar no matter how good or bad his Joker is and that is dumb. If you were an actor and had the film of your life come out this year your chances at an Oscar for it are pretty slim, because someone OD'd. Of course he could have given the portrayal of a lifetime and deserve it, but either way an Oscar he might win will be tainted because the main reason he probably will get it is because he died.

I haven't seen Monster's Ball or the cowboy movie, but in all the other movies I've seen him in he was a passable actor, nothing great nor terrible. In a way his untimely death gives him a legacy that he probably wouldn't have had otherwise. If someone in an art (music, acting, directing) dies young people think of all the great things they would have done if they hadn't died rather than looking at how few entertainers have a longevity of good and intersting output. Look at the Rolling Stones, The Who, and Harrison Ford for example. Though they still continue to put out new stuff (not so much for The Who lately), their lasting impact was from stuff they did 20 years ago whereas most of their new stuff is crap.

Death doesn't denote greatness, it only gives the illusion of lost potential greatness.

mjbok:

He was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor before, so that should lend itself to being called a great actor, I would think.

Sure, he's been in some stinkers too, but what actor hasn't?

I remember seeing a teaser trailer for The Dark Knight before Ledger died, and people were talking about it then, saying that his would be the best Joker, this performance would be one for the ages, stuff like that. Sure, his death has made it seem like more than it is, but I still think his performance would have won raves if he hadn't passed away.

"He was nominated for an Oscar for Best Actor before, so that should lend itself to being called a great actor, I would think.

Point taken about being nominated, but that alone doesn't mean much. I wouldn't call the girl from Juno a great actress and she was nominated. I believe that Stallone was nominated for Rocky, and though it was a good performance, calling him a great actor would be a stretch. His ex-wife was nominated for an Oscar and though I like her, she's no Judi Dench (or other great actress). Hell, Julia Roberts has won and I don't consider her a good, let alone great actress.

I actually pulled up his IMDB page to look at the body of his work and I couldn't find a terrible performance in the films of his that I've seen. I'm not bagging on the guy (at least I'm not trying to), but I think there is a shine on him that is from his death rather than the body of his work and he is being hailed for a performance most people haven't almost no one has even seen outside of small clips.

There is a part of the move Heathers that I think sums up my thoughts on celebrity deaths. The kids are sitting around talking about one of the kids that was killed. They are waxing poetic about these people they never got along with and are giving them characteristics they didn't have. Winona Ryder's character talks about how death gave one of them a soul, one of them a brain, etc. Death is the great absolver. Dead people never did anything wrong, and every word and deed they did was great, not to mention that they crapped ice-cream and farted rainbows.

I also ran into Bill Murray in NYC once. I felt stalkerish as I followed me him to the elevator - and felt like a complete dumbass when I asked him "Going up?" cause I realized we were on the ground floor and there was no basement. In true Bill Murray form he replied "no".
